Unable to install docker desktop in windows 10 Home Version 1909


Im trying to install Docker Desktop on windows Home version 1909 but the installer stops with the message:

Docker Desktop requires Windows 10 Pro/Enterprise (15063+) or Windows 10 Home (19018+)

I have virtualization enabled (all four items: extensions, 2nd level translation, firmware & data prot ) and WLS.

On the BIOS I have also the virtualization enabled as was mentioned to me in the comments

From a clean boot (see note above)
Repeatedly press Esc key at startup.
Press the F10 key for BIOS Setup.
Press the right arrow key to System Configuration tab, Select Virtualization Technology and then press the Enter key.


Forgot to mention that on the post: yep, virtualization is enabled at BIOS too. I will add this data to the question too so its not misleading.

If you open “cmd” you can see the exact version 10.0.x.y, where x is the needs to be equal or higher than 19018.
Mine is 19041, though I enabled the Slow Ring of the Windows Insider Program.
